I think I know the simple answer to this question. But... Before I go and do any thing, I just want to be sure.

I'm upgrading from KMS 6.3.1 patch 2, to KC 7.1.1 and in the process also upgrading the server hardware.

The old server is an older PowerMac G4 running OSX.4.x, KMS 6.3.1.
The new server is a Mac Mini running OSX.6.x, KC 7.1.1

Both machines runs/will run nothing but mail. The mail store is stored entirely on an external RAID, connected to the server via Firewire.

So, my question is... Should I be able to just disconnect the RADI with the mail store on it, and connect it to the new machine? Run the Connection Wizard to point to that location, install the new licenses, and be good?

Thanks,
Michael

With that big a leap in versions, I think I'd do it as two steps. Upgrade to 7.1.1 first, then migrate the hardware, or migrate to the new hardware using 6.3.1 and then upgrade to 7.1.1.

I thought about that actually, but one of the problems it seems, is version / OS / hardware compatibility. It may work still, but KC 7.x states system requirements as G5 or Intel, and I'm on a relatively slow G4. May still be worth a shot. However, I did get a response from tech support, which directed me to a KB article that is extremely helpful. I'd post the URL, but it seems this system won't let me until I've posted more. It's

Thanks,
